She Persisted _ PrintBusboys and Poets, The Zenith Gallery and Lake Research Partners launch RESIST - a nationally juried showcase of images from movements of resistance around the world. RESIST honors current resistance movements captivating the globe. Professional artists were invited to submit works that interpret and reflect the state of our world today. These images not only reflect the movements, but are also acts of protest in their own right.

Over 40 artists are represented in the exhibitions. At the Brookland location, Phillip Hazard's Persist engenders encouragement. Renee Fisher's provocative Mediocre! at the Takoma location is a commentary on white supremacy / privilege and governmental abuse of power. Lea Craigie-Marshall's Cabinet of Horrors at 5th & K is a satirical representation of the U.S. Cabinet Members as Russian Dolls. Busboys and Poets has always been a place where Art, Culture and Politics collide! The RESIST exhibition honors that commitment and offers a verse in the story!
